I was invited to attend the British Home Child Reunion on July 22, 2018, in Kitchener, Ontario to launch my new book, Marjorie Her War Years: A British Home Child in Canada. The event was organized by Lori Oschefski of the British Home Children Advocacy and Research Association. It was held at the Waterloo Region Museum.

 

Reunion: the act or process of being brought together again as a unified whole.

 

From September 14 to September 17, I traveled around Nova Scotia, talking about my new book, Raising Royalty: 1000 Years of Royal Parenting. The book examines how 20 sets of royal parents from medieval times to modern times raises their children, from fending off Viking attacks to fending off paparazzi.

Dundurn Publicity Takes on Calgary

Posted on March 8 by Kyle in Events, News

Jaclyn and Kendra headed to Calgary at the end of February for the Alberta Regional Book Fair. While our Ampersand sales team was busy presenting titles to Alberta booksellers, Jaclyn and Kendra were visiting local bookstores, libraries, Chapters stores, and festival contacts!

We kicked off the visit with our Dundurn Breakfast event attended by Calgary authors David Poulsen, Hilliard Macbeth, Shirlee Smith-Matheson, Frank O'Keeffe, and Dennis McConaghy. It was great to meet them in person for the first time and get the low-down on the local book scene.
